I wrote an article yesterday where I pointed out that we don’t know what will happen after death, and that the most peaceful – for me – is the rest in and as that not-knowing.
Today, I wrote another article about how I sometimes check in with people who have recently died to sense what’s going on with them.
How can both be true? Don’t they contradict each other?
Not really. They can easily co-exist. In a sense, they complement each other.
The not-knowing is the context. And the checking-in is pragmatic and part of daily life activities, and hopefully held lightly.
It’s the same for my general view on what may happen after death.
Not-knowing is the context and what’s most true.
And everything else – my apparent memory of the time before incarnation, checking in with those who have recently died, NDE reports, research, and so on – informs my view about what MAY be happening. I have experiences, interpretations of those experiences, and ideas about what’s going on, and I aim to hold it all lightly.
They are questions about the world, not answers.
Not-knowing and questions about the world live together. They come from the same place.
